Robbins 100th Year Celebration and 19th Annual Back to School Festival & Parade

The Mayor of Robbins, Tyrone Ward would like to invite you to the Village of Robbins’ 100th Year Celebration and 19th Annual Back-to-School Festival & Parade.

We attract around 5,000 visitors to the Village of Robbins each fall for this annual family event. This event attracts

celebrities, politicians, and many other dignitaries because of the overwhelming magnitude of spectators that fill the streets early to view the parade each year. This year our festival takes place from September 1st – September 3rd, 2017 at 13800 S. Trumbull Ave., Robbins, Illinois 60472.

The festival will feature performances and entertainment from a variety of groups, a youth an adult basketball tournament, food and craft vendors, youth activities, and some of Chicago Southland’s best choirs and singers.

Robbins Pre-Labor Day Parade is Sunday, September 3rd at 2:00p.m. Our parade is one of the biggest events of the festival weekend. Furthermore, our Parade has earned the honor of being one of the largest African American parades in the Chicago Southland area complete with marching bands, floats, free school supplies, and let’s not forget candy! Our annual parade is surpassed only by the Annual Bud Billiken Parade. This is an experience you do not want to miss!
